Do You Meditate?

I love meditation.
But, it hasn’t always been that way. I was in resistance of it for many years. It just seemed so hard … until one day I realized it was me who was making it hard … and much harder than it had to be (sound familiar at all?)
I thought this quote from Abraham explains the purpose of meditation very well. The “it” is the energy, the clarity, the positive vibrations 🙂
That’s why so many of us teach meditation. Because when you stop thought, you stop resistant thought. When you stop resistant thought, then you let it in. That’s why we teach appreciation, because when you’re in appreciation, you are not in the mode of resistance, and you are letting it in.
—Abraham

  1. I’ve been really struggling with meditation. My mind is so busy. Lately I’ve been meditating to natural nature sounds and this has been working better for me. 🙂

  2. I have never been able to “meditate” correctly… at least I don’t think so. I try to quiet my mind and just be, but I can’t seem to get it right. People say it’s so easy and I know I am making it harder than it is. I miss the days when I had a fireplace and I would just lay on the floor and gaze into the fire for an hour or more. Time did not exist to me then. I also love being out in nature; however, that is a time that is few and far between… so I’ve begun to lay on my couch and listen to my rain CD… its very calming and even though I might not get any answers from doing it this way, at least it’s a time to relax and just be. Baby steps for me I guess.

  3. I struggle.. I love it when I can do it.. but my head gets in the way and wanders.. if im in a one on one I can do it.. i can get grounded easier for some reason.. but for me to just sit down and listen to something or do it on my own.. i get in my own way..

  4. I get so caught up in the “rules” of meditation – fighting the incoming thoughts, and when I finally get quiet time I fall asleep. I want to meditate but I suck at it. LOL I know that that is my resistance to it but I can’t overcome it.

  5. Back when I was a child, I would spend time alone in nature, just breathing and listening to the birds, the wind in the trees, the chirping of the crickets, and gaze upon the green grass and the white clouds decorating the blue skies. Now I look back at those times and realize I was doing meditation. That is why I loved summer so much, as where I lived then it was a beautiful place of greenery. I continue to do my best meditation gazing upon my backyard, watching the birds enjoy my trees. And, watching the magical changes in the skies from morning, and then, in the early evening. Love the time of letting go, and letting in. Thank you for this wonderful reminder of how important meditation has been in my life.
